Description 1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Draped Bust Left AU50 NGC. M. 17-g.3, W-304, Low R.4. 151.2 grains. Dr. Hall's white edge paint is noted on this lovely example. The obverse die appears nowhere else in the Connecticut series, and the reverse die also appears with obverse 24. A small obverse planchet flaw is noted on the cheek, with others at the center of the reverse. Scattered post-production marks are inconsequential on this impressive olive-brown example that shows splashes of mahogany on the reverse. The 1975 Pine-Tree EAC sale had a VF example. The Taylor coin was nearly XF and the Norweb example graded Fine to Very Fine. Only the XF Perkins coin and the AU Ford example approach the quality of this piece. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; Brand Estate; B.G. Johnson (sold for $2.50); Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,585.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
